rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show that we're fighting our own defense it makes us more weak. it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are much more willing to test us-- >> with all drew respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is rack rat. >> first of all,-- >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney before he knew the facts before he even knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out naiking a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this-- this weakness. i don't understand what my friend's talking about here. we-- this is a president who has gone out and done everything he has said he was going to do. this is a guy who has repaired our allianc
military in tunisia as a major issue. in libya there was no ministry of defense under gadhafi, and we don't even have a minister of defense in the newly-reformed, so curbing military power in the narrow sense of an army isn't the main issue in tunisia either, and i actually think -- excuse me, libya -- and i actually think that probably, you know, 95% of the 250,000 or so libyans walking around with weapons are trying to keep the peace, not make mischief. .. and the security forces and in defense of the regime that is where the action is, not in the military. you're the geopolitics guy. >> i thought the worst-case scenario for the algerian military is instability in northern mali. and you know what is going on in the eastern front with libya. i know that some troops had to be redeployed in the eastern front because of the, the traffic of armaments and drugs and other issues. this is the worst case so. >> i just want to take the opportunity to answer a question that hasn't been asked. but, this is something that i was thinking about. it's slightly related to your question but it's somethin
, what is the matter with you. what i would say in joe biden's defense and i would challenge anyone within the sound of my voice to send me a note, who was voted out of office because they were too arrogant or too condescending. i don't know that person. >> wait a minute. people don't like--people don't like condescension. but that's not what i think was going on here. you know what bothered me, and had he done this move once or twice, you know, it can be very effective. to do it constantly like that, it bothers me in two ways. first of all this is not a good way to win over voters who are on the defense. second of all imagine it turns all sorts of people off not just me. there are some midwestern states that are not entirely red you know. think about it this way. think about the president. what if we as a nation decided yeah that is the way our presidential debates should be conducted. these guys, you constantly talk over one another ridicule one another. >> there is that, thomas, but then there is the idea of the soft peddling, the happy warrior. when they got into the substance o
hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to the military triggering significant defense job losses. now, there is a battle brewing over layoff notices that could go out right before the election. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel. >> the law says mass layoffs are coming, notices should go out 60 days ahead. obama administration that isn't necessary since many are hoping a deal will be struck to avoid the cuts. even so, a ceo i talked to he will be up front with his employees. >> it makes it challenging. people come to work. we've got some of the best people in the country working for us. they come every day, they want to design the best systems that our fighters need, but it's challenging. when they sit around kitchen table at night. honey, what is going to happen? it's tough because they don't know. >> reporter: obama administration is telling contractors if they get sued for not sending out layoff notices the government will pick up the tack. lockheed martin will hold off telling workers, but two kron man sent a letter saying quote, should you rely on that guidance and fa
been on such an offensive all of a sudden has to be on the defensive, and he doesn't handle it very well. >> there were several things that hart didn't handle well, but that's another sry. >> he was reeling. we came right backn with another punch, which was the red phone. >> the most awesome, powerl responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone. >> again, they used emotion to sell the idea that gary hart was styl not substance. >> vote as if the future of the world is at stake. >> decades later -- >> it's 3:00 a.m., and your children are safe andsleep, but there's a phone in the white house and it's ringing. >> hillary clinton's consultants used the same theme to attack barack obama. >> who do you want answering the phone? >> in this case it was barack obama, because he answered the red phone at 3:00 in the morning. said, gary heart answered the red phone at 2:00 in the morning. did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> today's ads are more likely to be direct attacks. >> barack obama, what a disappointment. >> americans say we don't like these attacks, but t
's eve this year, a hundred billion on sequester in defense and nondefense spending will hit. and unemployment insurance will stop, so when you add that up, 700 billion, nearly 5% of gdp on an annualized basis, i'm not confident that political system has capacity to deal with a world wind this massive. neil: why are the markets so sanguine through this? >> there is no one at home on wall street, these are basically robots trading world clouds emitted by federal reserve or other tral banks in the world, they trade day-to-day hour to hour, based on latest new an in word, -- ne nuance in the world, this is not a one time events. neil: some are, jamie dimon of j.p. morgan is marshals for it. >> we're forming now a fiscal cliff war room, command center and all this stuff to make sure we understand it, j.p. morgan will survive a fiscal cliff, i think it is terrible policy to allow it to get close. neil: prepare for something bad? >> i think they are prepared. but -- >> what would a brokerage firm or investorment bank have to do to be repaired. >> i'm not sure, but they have a multi
to tell them we just change your missile defense plan. he doesn't plan to go whisper to the president of france that mr. netanyahu was a pain, you know where. he doesn't plan to turn around to the russian president and say, just wait, once i have flex but i can do all kinds of things i can't do right now. he doesn't plan to stand aside when there's a major green revolution in iran, and the united states does nothing. we're supposedly trying to get the mullahs to appeal to what we're looking for, and at the same time, the very same mullahs know that when there was a real threat to them, we sat on our hands. what does that tell you about our credibility? what does that tell you about us? >> dov them you've written a book about afghanistan. you were the point person on the afghan account, during the george w. bush administration. governor romney mentioned of course the 2014 drawdown in his monday speech. what he didn't talk about is that it was a strategic partnership agreement that the administration had negotiate with the afghan government, which will keep american soldiers in afghanis
and individual rights and not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. because what that does, when we show -- when we look weak, our enemies are much more willing to test us. and our allies are -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so? >> nothing he said is accurate. >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement, which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this weakness. i don't understand what my friend is talking about here. this is a president who has gone out and done everything he had said he was going to do. this is a guy who repaired our alliances so the rest of the world follows us again. this is a guy who brought the entire world, including russia and china to bring about the most devastating, mo
will be secretary of state or secretary of defense are a? >> the thing is in the romney camp as mike has been describing there is an array of opinion and there is an array of opinion in the foreign-policy camp. from um ambassador to postrel and many in between and i think he is more likely to go with john bolton but we don't know. >> and the wise person just mentioned there's a there is a possibility for secretary of state senator rob portman to become an important advisor, has white house experience under both 41, 43 and would be a reassuring pic. >> let me pick up of what judy said because i think one of the really interesting stories if romney is elected after the guy has been campaigning for the president for eight years but one of the ruin just in questions will be who is the real romney particularly now that he is not running and he will be thinking of re-election but he is not running at that moment for president and we don't know. there would be a battle in the state for the neocons and the foreign-policy and just let me me assist jarden, realist. whether it is selleck or john bolton,
. the one thing he ran away from, the $2 billion comment that govern the romney made, the defense spending. he could not explain their medicare plan. he tried to run away from the fact on senior citizens over time. he criticized the stimulus plan, the recovery act, stopping the free-fall of the economy. he looked sheepish when the vice president mentioned brian himself had written a letter asking for the money from the program because he said it would help the wisconsin economy and would create jobs in winter -- in wisconsin. i thought congressman ryan was on the run from start to finish. the one thing he did say and the american people heard clearly tonight is they will not hear the commitment to leave afghanistan in 2014. was one of the only things he made clear tonight. it was a decisive victory. >> style vs. content? how would you judge it? >> i do not know how earnest you are when you are running away from every question you ask. i do not think that is earnest. it looked like a principled debate. in terms of style, joe biden is authentic and real. he is straightforward. he says woody
is being addressed. as a matter of fact, we are using the department of defense and a coordinated effort, but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense and to a police organization. we are using our military assets and a prudent way to deal with the introduction, and we have made some success in this area. 70 tons of cocaine have been stopped. but you know when you look at the drug problem, and it is a tremendous problem and there are no so easy solutions to it. it is a complicated problem and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug free america not only will we utilize national defence and the department of defense we've got to get to education and education ought to begin at home and not to be reinforced in our schools. there is another thing they're will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets. we are not going to -- we will use military assets, but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem as law enforcement. and here is where we have a major di
to eliminate those that aren't working. i know a lot of them that aren't working. one of them is in defense spending, because i've taken on some of the defense contractors. i saved the taxpayers $6.8 billion in a deal for an air force tanker that was done in a corrupt fashion. i believe that we have to eliminate the earmarks. and sometimes those projects, not the overhead projector that senator obama asked for, but some of them that are really good projects, will have to be eliminated as well. and they'll have to undergo the same scrutiny that all projects should in competition with others. so we're going to have to tell the american people that spending is going to have to be cut in america. and i recommend a spending freeze that, except for defense, veterans affairs, and some other vital programs, we'll just have to have across-the-board freeze. and some of those programs may not grow as much as we would like for them to, but we can establish priorities with full transparency, with full knowledge of the american people, and full consultation, not done behind closed doors and shoving earma
had been on such an offensive all of a sudden has to be on defensive and he doesn't handle it very well. >> john: there were several things that hart didn't handle very well. >> he was reeling and we came right back in which was the red phone. >> most powerful responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone. >> john: they used emotion to sell the idea that gary hart was style and not substance. >> vote as the future of the world is at stake. >> john: decades later. your children are safe and asleep. >> hillary clinton's use the same theme to attack barack obama. >> in this case it was barack obama. we said to gary hart it's 2:00 in the morning. yeah, did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> john: it's more likely to be a direct attack. americans say we don't like these attacks, but they do work. in the swing states they now run all the time. >> if you are hearing me approve this message, believe me so am i. >> i'm barack obama, eye i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> john: however, most of you won't see those messages. you have been excluded. i'll
and touched my 11-year-old body. meanwhile, the defense says it is now in the process of filing an appeal. defense attorney joe amendola said if there was more time, they would have won an acquittal. listen. >> we believed if we had enough time, we could develop enough information, which is what we were in the midst of doing. literally, we shut down midstream in about three or four different very important areas was we had no more time to do it. if we had the time, we would have had an opportunity to prove jerry's innocence. >> reporter: and after today's hearing, sandusky is now categorized as a violet sexual predator. that means if ever released, he has to register, a moot point since he'll be at least 98 years old when he breathes free air again. megyn? megyn: wow. thank you. >>> a dramatic series of attacks on twitter after a black actress tweets out that she is supporting governor mitt romney for president. remember this gal from clueless? ann coulter weighs in on the attacks on her right after this break. >>> plus, new predictions on the race for the white house. who's the projected
jurisdiction was raised as a defense, right? >> personal jurisdiction was raised as an affirmative defense, but not raised in a motion to dismiss. >> and so your position is it was waived? >> yes. >> but it was not adjudicated. is there -- >> it was not adjudicated in this case. our position, it was waived when it was not raised in a rule 12 motion. >> what effects that commenced in the united states or that are closely related to the united states exist between what happened here and what happened in nigeria? >> the only connection between the events in nigeria and the united states is that the plaintiffs are now living in the united states and have asylum because of those events, and the defendants are here. there's no other connection between the events that took place in the -- in nigeria and the forum. the basis for suing the defendants here was because they are here and because it was possible to get jurisdiction. >> and just to make it clear -- >> yes. >> it's your position -- and i believe it's the position of the united states, i'm not sure -- that if a u.s. corporation commits an
, he needs to seem engaged. he needs to answer those hard questions without being defensive and so, they both have challenges going in, but it should ab really great debate. >> clayton: it's interesting if you look back as a historian, 2008 and beyond. vice-president biden, then candidate biden crushed hillary clinton and barack obama in the debates. he was the one winning the debates. >> he's a very strong debater. i'm sure that that's the biden that will show up this week, but part of the problem that a president and a vice-president faces is that they can be insulated very easily. they speak to crowds that adore them. >> right. >> they aren't orphanage challenged with tough questions from reporters as we've seen lately and i think that's a big challenge for biden this time around. >> historically the vice-president debates, i think, vealyielded a lot more entertaining moment and some think they'll stand out more. >> lloyd benson and dan quayle, 2002008. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. (cheer (cheers) >> that was a fierce moment. >> that wa
with deeds. our defense spending is deeply cut . we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. >> steve: here is pete is here. >> good morning. >> steve: mitt romney would like to be commander-in-chief. did he make a good case for himself . >> it was a fantastic speech and speech about leadership and carrying the mantel for freedom and still in a dark and difficult world and used libya for the larger struggle we face. he put it in the context of the larger foil we have faced. there are forces of radical islamism that seek our destruction and we stand up up to that. there will not be daylight for israel. and red line for iran. >> brian: he brought up the fact george marshall said the best thing to do to avoid war is to build up our defense and make us stronger. that's the best deterrent in war and proposed to build that rather than shrink the military. >> that is right. that is the difference between governor romney approach and the president. peace through strength. and the president said standing back is less provocat
tough by reversing looming defense cuts coming at the end of the year, threatening to impose possible new sanctions on iran and by looking for ways to arm the rebels in syria. romney also said he would pursue a two-state solution between the israelis and palestinians, a concept he seemed to diminish at a fund-raiser that was secretly recorded and leaked to mother jones magazine. >> i look at the palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of israel. i say, there's just no way. >> reporter: the obama campaign tried to get the jump on romney's speech, releasing a new ad, reminding voters of the republican candidate's gaffe-plagued foreign trip over the summer. romney, obama aides say, is no ronald reagan, more like chevy chase. combatting that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimm
who kills in self-defense in the home. it's still true that the home in our country is the single most dangerous place for a woman, it's not the street. so we need to look at what really exists, highlight what really exists, see things in a different frame, see equal pay as an economic stimulus. has anybody written about it that way? i have not seen it. and understand the profound deep implications of what we are about. sometimes there is an immediate thing we need to do. obviously we need to reauthorize the violence against women act before the end of this year, right. [applause]. one of the hold was so outrageous because it was about indian country where there is more violence against women and that's what they didn't want. this room knows more about the process of the senate and the house. but sometimes there is an immediate goal of that sort. and then there is the very long-term goal of understanding not to be -- i don't want to frighten anybody here, but it is the key to world peace. that is a huge distance and it's absolutely true. we need to understand that the question can wome
are the cases of the naacp legal and education defense fund that thurgood marshall is actually bringing and he is building at sort of brick by brick, block by block or go thurgood marshall not yet of course the justice of the supreme court. he is making the case that plessy versus ferguson and, which defined the acceptability of separate but equal, they are making the case to the naacp that this cannot be, cannot remain the law of the land and it is pretty clear that the case that is going to become a very important one for the court and it's actually a year that rehnquist is there is brown versus board of education. which turns out in fact to be the case that strikes that document down, very very important in a unanimous verdict, unanimous decision of the supreme court. so rehnquist, part of the role of a clerk is to offer his advice and opinions to his boss about these cases and so rehnquist writes a memo about brown versus board of education and he basically says that plessy should stand. rehnquist authors this memo and gives it to jackson. jackson doesn't -- i am sure jackson read the memo
a blog, i think you had a blog in "the new yorker" about the defense of marriage act and the way it would be reviewed and i thought that would be an interesting thing to bring at there are two issues to the supreme court of the same time and they both relate to same-sex marriage but the cases is a challenge to the constitutionality of the defense of marriage act. as i'm sure many of you know the defense of marriage act passed in 1996 says the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages under any circumstances even if they are legal in the of where and just as married as any heterosexual couple in massachusetts. as i'm sure you know under the internal revenue code, money one spouse to the other but because the irs can't surviving spouse had to pay taxes on that money. there was a considerable amount so it was a very straight up challenge to that law. the other case that is heading to the supreme court is the proposition 8 case out of california and equal protection it loving versus virginia and the sense that can the state to ban this? the doma case, the case is a lot easier l
like i have to rush to the defense of people who look boyish. >> but you're not running for vice president. >> thank god. >> but if you were, that would be part of the case you had to make that you were ready. this is not the most important issue tonight, but it has been bugging me as give been doing all this prep is when before mitt romney picked paul ryan he was making the case on the campaign trail that nobody should be allowed to run for president of the united states. amend the u.s. constitution so you couldn't run unless you had significant private sector experience, except for paul ryan who he picked to be his vice presidential nominee. do you think that distance between ryan and romney, ed, is the most important thing? most important opening tonight for joe biden? >> well, in your opening you talked about how they're very much the same. washingtonites. but the way they got there is a lot different. ryan's path was one of privilege. joe biden's was one of true middle class. i think tonight's debate is as much about how liberals are going to feel when it's over with, as par
line. ryan on the defensive, ryan the bystander says "the washington post." will it last? america watched the vice-president interrupt frequently, smirk far too much and just get the facts plain wrong. and paul ryan went right at the obama record and the issues, taxes in particular. and he won the warned the middle class, watch out, this president will take more of you. you'll see it on the program and astonished at this. the european union wins the nobel peace prize, yes, collapsing rioting europe wins for peace, incredible. "varney & company" is about to begin. >> ryan focussed on the issues and biden focusing on attacking and interrupting. you could argue either man won. one of the big moments when they were talking about taxes and listen to this exchange. >> the only way you can find 5 trillion dollars in loopholes is cut the mortgage deduction for middle class people, cut the health care deduction, middle class people, take away their ability to get a tax break to send their kids to college. that's why they-- >> is he wrong about that? >> he's wrong about that. >> how is tha
on offense from our perspective and five on defense and that is a great opportunity for americans. host: we will go back to our campaign 2012 bus down in danville, ky. caller: good morning, my question is -- does either party have any plans for rehabilitating recent veterans suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder? guest: in the last congress, democrats passed the new gi bill which was the largest new assistance to veterans coming home since the gi bill and the second world war. our party has a good track record on this issue. in the most recent congress, republicans repeatedly voted against insuring that troops receive their pay in the event of a government shutdown but made sure they got paid. i think the record there is pretty clear. guest: that does speak for itself, everyone got paid the fact is, we need more jobs especially for our troops returning home with me to get our economy moving again. we are focused on making sure we are not taxing job creators and reducing government spending which is hampering job growth. jobs, jobs, jobs is what the speaker has said from the beginnin
